Devices and users not showing up in listings

memanlv99memanlv99 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 86 Plex Pass

ive noticed a pattern of the device listings not showing everything or everyone connect and streaming. for example i have a connection from someone somewhere thats running microsoft edge which i awesome is windows 10 IE explorer and doesnt show in the devices but yet can see actively streaming. it would also be nice to see what friend or user is streaming what content and or what ip address the connections are coming from as well as what user or friend in the device listings and content as well.

    You can only see and manage devices which are connected to your plex.tv account in there.
    Devices logged into other people's plex.tv accounts don't appear.
